Artichoke ‘Violet de Provence’

In Stock



A beautiful and early globe artichoke. We start eating these in late May. Picked small, the buds have no choke. If you cut the whole plant down to the ground (leaves and all) they will crop again 6-8 weeks later.

I love globe artichokes so I pick from these plants first, then ‘Gros Vert de Laon’, by which time ‘Violet’ is cropping again. It’s worth having a few plants of each so you get a good successional system with these perennial plants. I also spray these silver and use them at Christmas. They look fantastic.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Cut them down to the ground in summer. May need staking in windy areas. May produce small artichokes in first summer but remove these to eat at golf ball size. Don’t allow them to grow to full size as they will hamper the development of the plant.
